COVID-19 UPDATE...

*Currently due to Coronavirus, we have stopped face to face support. However, we will be supporting our women, children and young people through telephone, WhatsApp and Facetime. We will get back to normal working as soon as possible.*

Domestic abuse affects every woman differently. So, when a woman contacts us, we ask about what’s going on in her life and we fit our services around that. This includes taking account of any disabilities, age, sexuality or other factors.

We give each woman her own worker(s), called a ‘key worker’. All staff are women. They know about domestic abuse and the fear and harm it causes.

We will:

- Listen to what women say.
- Help her to be as safe as possible.
- Explain her options and her rights.
- Help her decide what to do (if anything).
- Help her feel stronger in herself.
- Tell her about other help she can get.
- Help her get support for her children.
- Give her practical help: for example to find somewhere safe to stay or to get a solicitor or health care; or legal protection; or to apply for benefits (money) she is due.
- If a woman needs to leave the area/community she lives in, we have links with Women’s Aid all over the UK
